WASHINGTON - For the second-consecutive year, three-time All-American Renee Tomlin (Ocean City, N.J./Ocean City) has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 2 Women's Track & Field First Team.

Tomlin will join five of her Hoyas as they travel to Des Moines, Iowa, for the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Tomlin will compete in the women's 1,500-meter run along with fellow All-Americans Rachel Schneider (Dover, N.H./St. Thomas Aquinas) and Madeline Chambers (Rocky River, Ohio/Magnificat).
